Gabby Leggett moved to Boston to L.A. to become an actress, but, after a couple of commercial spots, she dropped out of sight. Gabby's mother hires Spenser to find her daughter. Once on the West Coast, Spenser connects with his protégé, Zebulon Z Sixkill, a Cree Indian and successful PI. Their first contact is Gabby's former boyfriend, who has a key to Gabby's apartment, which Spenser discovers has been tossed. As Spenser and Z continue to retrace Gabby's life, the trail points to a self-help group that promises enlightenment. Sounds great, but there are also indications that the leader of the group has a proclivity for young women like Gabby. Spenser and Z become hypersuspicious when a couple of thugs attempt to stop their investigation. Gunfire ensues. Atkins continues to do a fine job of extending the life of Robert B. Parker's characters and capturing the tone of the Spenser series. Parker would be proud of Atkins' wise-guy patter; the violence is exciting and nicely choreographed; and Atkins' plots are complex enough to hold readers' interest yet do not get in the way of the suspense.

Nobody knows what happened to Ellie Sharp, who scampered from Boston to Los Angeles with glittery Hollywood dreams, then disappeared two years later. Spenser is hired by her family to find her, and soon thereafter he's also confronting the disappearance of protégé Zebulon Sixkill, now an L.A. investigator.

Bestseller Atkins's routine eighth Spenser novel (after 2018's Old Black Magic) takes Robert B. Parker's PI from his native Boston to Hollywood, in search of 23-year-old Gabby Leggett, an aspiring actress whose mother grew concerned after not hearing from her for over a week. Spenser is aided by old friend and colleague Zebulon "Z" Sixkill, who's filling in for Hawk as Spenser's partner and muscle. The pair pursue obvious leads from Gabby's personal life, including questioning her former boyfriend and current agent, Eric Collinson, who's less than cooperative and denies having any knowledge of her whereabouts. Her latest lover, Jimmy Yamashiro, the president and CEO of a major movie studio, won't disclose Gabby's current location, but reveals that she's been trying to blackmail him. Before long, Spenser and Z are menaced by the requisite gun-toting thugs, and Spenser must call in another old ally for help. It takes a while for Gabby's fate to be disclosed, a reveal that's neither original nor surprising. This by-the-numbers effort will appeal most to Parker devotees. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM. (Nov.)
